Some nice stuff. I like the head hurt guy with the soldiers, and the guy with smoke behind him looking confused. Like the other anon said, it's good you're getting into the action. Shots of people holding signs aren't as strong, but I feel for those ones you need to catch people at the right moment, like when they're yelling or something.

Pretty nice. House at farm looking through window is choice. Car poking out of the bush is sick.

Macro photography is onions af. But on the other hand your windmill is dark and moody, great contrast, glad you went black and white. Perfect piece to do so.
>>3474467 #
I hate portraits and anyone who marches in a rally for anything. Your pictures seem fine but that kind of photography is lame and every picture is the same shit over and over sorry.

Oh hey buddy good stuff but you need to post more. Not every shot has to be a winner. If you post a few stinkers it makes your good pics look even better.

You seem to be setting a melancholic mood and having a tone is cool but your pictures are boring. Find some better light. Try shooting the same pictures but at different times.

Mine is a variation between cars, nature and architecture. I travel the US from time to time so I have a lot of pictures of major cities. Ideas on consistent content are welcome, though so are any ideas really. I don't mind being generic but I want to be better than boring.

Nillux here to give my feedback. Accidentally passed out whoops.

>>3474399
Really good stuff! Not really a fan of macro/wildlife but you do it well.

>>3474467
Your shots are good, im just not a super huge fan of the content though. Wherever you are you got some happy looking protesters though.

>>3474520
I remember your statue shot from the rpt thread. I really like your eye for perspective a lot. I like your street work mostly (the roof shot, the stuff in shibuya, etc). Following.

>>3474640
That making your pics smaller thing is such a dumb fad. All it does is make your images look like shit because its hard to see. On top of that it looks like you arent saving your images properly for insta so the compression is fucking them further.

>>3474793
Any shots in particular? There were a couple that I want to get in different weather/lighting but usually I wont upload if I think Im gonna be going back to it later on.

What are y’all gunna do if they remove likes? They are implementing it in Canada as a test run.

It’d be better for mental health but I see contrarian faggots scared their only source of validation would be taken

>>
>>3474953
Canada guy here. It's been likeless for about a week or so. Hasn't really bothered me. It's probably for the better. Likes do give some validation, but maybe it will get me posting more just because people won't be able to see the "duds".

I wonder if it will put more emphasis on follower count or something.

I got myself a full-time job a few months ago and now I have lots of money for gear but no time to use any of it. Going to upload more even if it's garbage.

Film? I like a lot of it. Really simple compositions but pleasing to look at.

>>3474575
You really like clouds eh?

>>3474527
Noice muted colours, I think you could do with getting closer to some of your subjects though.

I like what you do. I think the actual difficulty of this kind of photography is not to end up just taking photos of weird people doing stuff. I love No chance 10, 21 and 24. Some of the portraits are also very interesting.

>>3474640
Super interesting. I'm not sure if i will critic the format, but I do see that some of the photos seem to be in low quality for some reason. It's very noticeable in the one of the lighthouse. I'm into it anyway, it's super good.

>>3475006
I don't have a lot to comments but I really like the last three photos. I want to see more.

I'm trying but it's more difficult than you'd think. I like a wide array of things so it just makes it all a mess in the end.
>>
>>3475363
Then make a "personal" one and a portfolio one. Whatever goes into the personal, only the absolute best goes into the port one.
>>
>>3475367
I guess I might do that. The requires an entirely different email address too doesn't it? I recall you can manage two accounts but I don't know if I need another email.

>>3475377
Nope. Might have to designate one as a "business" but that's whatever.
>>
>>3475381
Oh nice. Well I'll go setup a second one then, thanks fort he help anon.
>>
>>3475389
np.

One thing though, swapping between multiple accounts can get annoying. You have to tap on your icon in the lower right, then in the upper left, you tap on your screen name, then you can choose between the active account.
>>
>>3475390
Gotta do what I gotta do. It pisses me off that you can't upload from a browser though, most of my pictures are copied to my computer and then moved over to my phone so I can post them.
>>
>>3475394
If it really bothers you, download an android emulator, then install instagram on that.
>>
>>3475407
not other anon but is bluestacks still relevant in 2019?
>>
>>3475409
No clue, I just know the way to upload from a computer is by installing an emulator.
>>
instagram.com/kaunas.jpg

Not much yet but some film is being developed right now
>>
>>3475394
You can though. If you inspect element/F12 on the IG website on chrome there’s a button that lets you emulate the mobile version, and you can upload from there.

Any other photogs here really not give a shit about posting to IG? Like I know I should care because it would help my business, but then again, social media can suck a fat one even if IG is one of the better platforms.

Promising stuff. Your attention to detail is out of this world. Common interests, too. Followed. You may find it challenging and rewarding to start considering the organism as part of its biology and trying to capture specific pieces of that.

>>3474467
I have a lot of friends who do social stuff. Cool portraits. I'm terrible at street so I can't give much in the line of constructive feedback.

>>3474640
Good job at slice of life shit. I'm always envious of you folks who know what to photograph to make me feel like I'm part of your life. It's very personal and touching. Just keep doing what you do.

>>3474695
Flame on. Neat subjects. Also very slice of lifey.

>>3475106
Great eye for pleasing color palettes. Your compositions do not appeal to me, but your colors make me feel.

>>3474943
I feel like you've got something good hidden in your feed, like there's a really neat photographer who is learning, but not letting enough of their own light shine through. I don't know if you spend a lot of time emulating others, but if you do, I suggest letting that down a little bit and marie kondo your shooting.

Me: mix of film and digital, legacy glass appreciation, point and shoots, nature and stuff. Lately I've been on a heck of a wildflower trip because we're just hitting the tail end of it here in the WSW.

Hello, I'm a newbie photographer, new to this site, I hope it all goes right. Get my feedback as a personal point of view of what I think it's good. So not as a professional criticism but just as a fan of photography, that doesn't know much.

The amazing picture I love the composition and the colours, they are so in harmony with everything I'm a fan of that kind of picture I would really love to takes pictures like this Macro is amazing.
>>3474399
Great shots I love the way you are using the aperture to perfectly frame the subject and blur the background and letting those background still be colourful

You'll be waiting a long time. Whenever anybody says "I'll post critiques later" in these threads they never actually do it. They want the self-promotion and free critiques for themselves without any of the work.

>>3477347

putting a frame around something makes it seem more important and worth looking at.

Been a while since I commented in one of these threads. Shooting mostly woodland/city scenes now-
https://www.instagram.com/seanbluestone/

>>3474826
Seems to be a personal profile which is fine but it's kind of pointless putting it in a thread like this
>>3474971
Already following you so I dig it. High contrast is neat but the more recent the darker your stuff is getting to the point that it's probably too dark for instagram. Also geez a shout next time you're about Edinburgh, could grab a pint and be autistic with cameras together
>>3475006
Too early to offer anything constructive other than I'm not immediately sure what I'm looking at in a lot of them, or why. I'd suggest shooting for a bit longer before creating an instagram as there's not much interest here
>>3475066
Nice to see some proper use of wide lens and format- digging those tall verticals in particular.
Your verticals and those dramatic night skies are the kind of stuff that does really well on Insta by the by, might be worth focusing on a bit more
>>3475162
Fun to look through, nice variety of both content and style/processing. Your content would fare a lot better on Flickr or 500px but I dig it regardless, followed.
>>3475233
Why is everyone on /p/ using white borders on IG?
Seems like personal photography which is cool, doesn't appeal much to me as you're mostly just shooting stuff that's interesting to you and I'd say some of them seem very hastily set up/snapped. If it's a personal page/project then this doesn't matter and ignore me.
>>3475697
I can see influences from other street photographers which is cool, definitely headed in the right direction and one or two good hits in there. Very cool
>>3476521
Comfy and consistent. I like the stuff where you're playing with post-processing. I think the old foreground-interest meme would help you in a lot of these
>>3476820
It's clear you're new cause you're shooting everything and trying to find what you like. Keep shooting, nothing terrible in here

It's true. The people who look at those photos and enjoy them are the same people that go see the new Transformers movie every year and enjoy it.

If I just joined Instagram, I'd be impressed, in fact when I had like a year ago yours was one of the first accounts I'd seen and I was like wow, this is really good, but after a year I can't say I feel the same way, I live in Cape Town South Africa, and there's so much accounts from local photographers with these clear, colorful, well composed photos and they mean Fuckall to me, in fact on a bad day I could actually despise an account like that. I'm sure you're a good person but there's little I find meaningful in your pictures, maybe it isn't my taste but all the colors and clarity is just superfluous, it reminds of stock photography, if that's what your'e going for well done. There is something to your nature shots, some of them, more the way you capture light. If you want advice, figure out a way to bring out the light in a more evocative way as I think its your strong suit. Maybe you're comfortable where you are and if so that's great and I envy you.

Cool landscapes, I bet they look even better on anything bigger than a mobile phone screen. The better ones are the landscapes that fit your aspect ratio IMO and the more abstracty ones . hmm I'd like to get more of a sense of you in your photo's though, like tell me a story through a photo, maybe the aspect ratio gives me a clinical impression despite it being nature shots. I guess you're very much into your technical composition?

>>3476820
Well yeah, I can tell you're new to photography. Your photos are IN focus, so good job. Look as long as your'e willing to learn and take risks, find your style give thought to what you want to do and don't be afraid to chuck away photo's you don't feel are right, then you'll be ok. Hope this makes sense...Good luck.


As for me, I was planning on posting my account, but in writing my critiques I felt I dont want to any longer. I'm not a photographer. So take my comments as you will.

I like the simplicity and the colors.
>>3474527
I like this one a lot in general. Just the mood all your pictures give, huge fan.
>>3474640
Amazing composition and use of color. Again, the pictures all have emotion which I really like.
>>3474943
I'll parrot what the others have said: your photography is high quality, it follows all the rules and plays really well by the book, but because of that there isn't too much "personal style" in a lot of them. You've mastered taking good photos, now I think you should really start to dive into what your own personal art/style/aesthetic is, and start going with that.
>>3475106
Still looking good my man
>>3476093
Also still looking good, love your stuff
>>3476239
I like your daytime photography a lot more than your night work, the day work looks a lot more crisp and has more emotion to it. The night work looks a little less refined (which is understandable because good night photography is incredibly difficult)
>>3476329
Big fan of the nature and outdoors stuff
>>3476521
I really love the consistency and theme here, great use of low contrast and high brightness, sometimes I feel like that's something that can be overdone, but you seemed to hit the right spot.
>>3476820
In my opinion a lot of your photos are a little oversaturated. If you use lightroom, often a general rule of thumb is to slide to -10 on your saturation bar as a pretty standard place to start. Your pictures aren't bad, you clearly have a nice camera and know how to use it, but like I told someone earlier, the next step is developing a sense of style so that your pictures have "feeling" to them. A lot of beginners take pictures that pretty much look like generic stock photos, which is to say they are high quality photos, but lack a certain level or artistic style or creativity to them. That usually comes with time and practice though, so stay with it and you'll be alright

First set of photos taken with my phone. I'm getting practice in before I go on a huge biking trip so feedback and advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the support

>>3478599
The biggest advice I would give you is that since phones are pretty shit quality (in terms of raw image quality) you need to dedicate entirely to framing, composition, and just interesting subjects/scenes/light/etc.

I really like the moss picture.
>>
>>3479888
Thanks man that's what I was feeling. the biggest problem I'm having is distance. If anything is further than a few feet away you need to start cropping like mad and you start to see the weakness of the lense.

Yeah unfortunately phone cameras just weren't meant for that, so that's going to be an issue you run into. I'd honestly recommend saving your money and getting a DSLR, some of the entry levels are pretty good. I cut my teeth on a Nikon D5600 that came with 2 lenses. Really something to consider if you consider this to be a lasting hobby.

Thanks, dude. Pleasure seeing you around still too. Always enjoy your shots of people. You capture personality really well; I've always thought of that as more of a "when" than a "what" to shoot deal.
>>
>>3480297
>Always enjoy your shots of people

Thanks man, I really love taking portraits. And yeah what I've noticed is that people (myself included) tend to be really bad at posing for pictures. You can just tell it looks staged/awkward, and so most of my best shots are as they are "getting ready for the pose" or talking to other people.

Hit me up with a DM, I have a separate account that is pretty much all portraits.

Ideally you want to use lesser used hashtags otherwise your post gets lost in the sea of posts using the same general tags

>Nice frames, real clean.

I was thinking about clearing my profile and reuploading everything over a period of time with frames and better organization. Any reason not to do that?

I don't see the appeal of blurry snaps.

>>3475162
You suffer from the same problem I do. Too much fragmentation. I think people don't dig through profiles like that.

Pretty much just landscapes and nature shit, run of the mill. My mom says I'm good at least!

>>3474467
Was never a huge fan of portraits but I actually really like these, good composition.

>>3474520
A lot of varied stuff on your profile which I really like. Well done.

>>3474527
Half of this shit I would have never thought to take a photo of, it blows my mind when people like you take photos of such generic things but still make them work so well. Hope you had fun on that trip to Alberta.

>>3474575
I love your B&W photos, the rest of it is kind hit or miss for me. Also, get rid of that fucking photo you took from the plane window, I despise those.

>>3474898
Good composition and colours. If I were you, I'd try experimenting with those night shots. Lower the exposure and go for something a bit darker/moodier. Just a suggestion.

>>3475066
I really like a lot of these. Especially that shot looking down the road with the parked cars and that one of the subway. Definitely sets a mood.

>>3476239
As someone said earlier, the daytime stuff works/looks a lot better than the night stuff, but keep practicing with the night stuff anyhow.
